3.5/5 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Amelia Navascues [Rami Malek] owns that big stage presence energy and clearly studied Freddie down to a tee. EDIT

3/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Amelia Navascues Bradley Cooper's modern reworking is passable enough to keep you entertained. EDIT

3.5/5 Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Amelia Navascues Bad Times starts strong and finishes, well...as a bit of a bad time. What at first looks like a promising Tarantino or Coen Brothers-esque movie, ends up as an annoyingly classic case of style over substance. EDIT

1/5 Venom (2018) Amelia Navascues Ultimately we're left with this mess of a PG-13 bloodless, watered-down impression of a superhero movie. The most grotesque thing in the entire movie has gotta be watching Tom Hardy shovel tater tots into his mouth like a goddamned Neanderthal. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
4/5 First Man (2018) Amelia Navascues First Man: a simple story told with tight execution. It's one small step towards a biopic not about a sporting legend, one giant leap for Hollywood...kind of. EDIT

3.5/5 A Simple Favor (2018) Amelia Navascues A Simple Favor is a thrilling ride worth checking out. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2018
3.5/5 To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Amelia Navascues If you want a realistic portrayal of the ugly truth of high school relationships, this ain't it. If you're after escapism, this might just be the best fantasy film since Lord of the Rings. EDIT

4.5/5 Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Amelia Navascues Buckle up son and get ready to go on a romantic adventure... because Crazy Rich Asians is an entertaining blast. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2018
Slender Man (2018) Amelia Navascues Slender Man is both unscary and really boring. The storytelling is weak and it's disrespectful to a generation of internet who not only loved him, but also created him. EDIT

4.5/5 BlacKkKlansman (2018) Amelia Navascues The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2018
4.5/5 Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Amelia Navascues Goes to show that despite being a big, beefy blockbuster, you can still do something that's well shot and considered. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2018
4/5 The Breaker Upperers (2018) Amelia Navascues [Madeleine Sami and Jackie Van Beek's] chemistry, biting wit, and on point improvisations are genuinely mint. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2018
3/5 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Amelia Navascues If this movie were a carbohydrate it'd definitely be about as complex as white bread. But admittedly, it is pretty interesting if you've ever been curious what a literal small and low stakes MCU movie looks like. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2018
3.5/5 Brother's Nest (2018) Amelia Navascues It's balanced and refreshingly contemporary. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2018
2.5/5 Tag (2018) Amelia Navascues Despite the fact that it's a real story based on real people, Tag never really gets further than those initial stunts of gags... It's a movie with a hell of a lot of padding. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2018
5/5 Hereditary (2018) Amelia Navascues Hereditary is a confident film that just knows it's going to mess you up no matter what. EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2018
2.5/5 Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Amelia Navascues If you want to see a perfect example of a once-loved and brilliant movie franchise being milked bone-dry, then the prequel spinoff "Solo" is the movie for you. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2018
3.5/5 Deadpool 2 (2018) Amelia Navascues Deadpool 2 is just like Deadpool 1; it's Ryan Reynolds being sassy in red spandex, f***ing s*** up for two hours. It's entertaining and funny as hell, but ultimately unsurprising. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2018
4/5 Breath (2017) Amelia Navascues The movie's strength also lies in its subtly, making it feel incredibly intimate and authentic. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2018
2.5/5 Anon (2018) Amelia Navascues You can't steal from every single stylistic choice from the history of sci-fi thrillers and not expect a complete train wreck. EDIT
Posted May 9, 2018
3.5/5 Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Amelia Navascues Avengers: Infinity Wars is clearly a superhero flick for everybody. At times this works, and at times its excessiveness works a little bit against itself. EDIT
Posted May 2, 2018
3.5/5 Unsane (2018) Amelia Navascues Gripping, successfully suspenseful, it'll keep you on the edge of your seat, but it'll also probably be remembered in a few years as "That iPhone movie that Steven Sod knocked together for fun between productions after un-retiring." EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
2/5 Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Amelia Navascues It's a fun watch. As for the plot itself, yeah it's going to be predictable as ever, but that's part of the cheesy charm. You'd be mad to take this movie seriously. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2018
3.5/5 Isle of Dogs (2018) Amelia Navascues It's like Wes Anderson on steroids. Yes, that's possible. EDIT
Posted Apr 11, 2018
4.5/5 The Death of Stalin (2017) Amelia Navascues [Armando] Iannucci goes out of his way to really push the envelope to create some super memorable caricatures from living memory. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2018
4/5 Love, Simon (2018) Amelia Navascues Love Simon is up there with your first kiss or first pancake on a Saturday morning; it's not perfect, but it's still sweet as hell. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2018
4/5 Annihilation (2018) Amelia Navascues Intelligent, original and exactly what Hollywood really needs right now. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2018
Air Bud (1997) Amelia Navascues Who wouldn't love a story about a homeless golden retriever who runs away from his alcoholic clown for a father, Norm, to shoot hoops? EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 Lady Bird (2017) Amelia Navascues Lady Bird might just be the new classic of the comic of age story. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2018
3.5/5 Black Panther (2018) Amelia Navascues Who would have thought that taking a risk would actually work. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2018
2/5 Red Sparrow (2018) Amelia Navascues When you've got talent like Jen Lawrence fronting your movie, the least you could do would be to just to develop her character. Just a little bit. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2018
3.5/5 I, Tonya (2017) Amelia Navascues Margot Robbie gives an incredible performance as Tonya. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2018
3.5/5 Baby Driver (2017) Amelia Navascues But whether you're in it for the music or just for the ride, Baby Driver is an entertaining car movie with an engine and a beat. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 Atomic Blonde (2017) Amelia Navascues Atomic Blonde is a chick fronted, action spy flick with teeth. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
2/5 Annabelle: Creation (2017) Amelia Navascues Albeit quite generic, it's a pretty well constructed horror movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 Ali's Wedding (2016) Amelia Navascues Ali's Wedding works because it doesn't feel the need to compare cultures or focus on the differences. Instead, it chooses to look at how similar we all are, when we're all a bit of a dopey, smitten kitten. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 It (2017) Amelia Navascues It follows a slower pace, which is fitting for a psychological horror. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
2.5/5 Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Amelia Navascues At times I felt like I was watching a live action Gentleman's Playbook for 16 year old boys whose biggest dreams are owning a designer suit. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
3.5/5 Battle of the Sexes (2017) Amelia Navascues The emotional stakes never really feel all that high throughout. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
4.5/5 Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Amelia Navascues It's a very self aware continuation, but not a complete replicant. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
3.5/5 Good Time (2017) Amelia Navascues Before you grind your teeth reliving the trauma that were the five Twlight movie [Robert Pattinson] previously starred in, he's actually great. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
2.5/5 American Made (2017) Amelia Navascues Barry Seal isn't even really a hero, but he's not that great of a criminal either. He just seems to be a string of one liners and even when he's knees deep in coke, he's still just that little bit lame. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
3.5/5 Brigsby Bear (2017) Amelia Navascues it's really messed up, but the SNL guys do really seem to find that sweet spot. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
2.5/5 Justice League (2017) Amelia Navascues It's so middle of the road, it may as well be the James Blunt of superhero movies. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
1/5 Jigsaw (2017) Amelia Navascues Jigsaw: failing to pick up the pieces since 2010. It's a massive shame for what was once a playful and fun horror movie franchise. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2018
3/5 Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith (2005) Megan Spencer The best of Lucas's recent SW trilogy. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2015
Casino Royale (2006) Megan Spencer The pay off is pay dirt. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2015
3.5/5 Quantum of Solace (2008) Megan Spencer New director Marc Forster was a unusual choice. Personally, I think it was a good call. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2015
3/5 Elektra (2005) Megan Spencer Worth a look. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2015
2/5 Catwoman (2004) Megan Spencer Its over-edited style smacks of panic, the CGI cat woman is plainly not real, and the broadside it fires at the beauty industry is only limp at best. EDIT
